Rain, Sleet, or Snow, Y'all Came Thru!


Thanks to the generous contributions from community, we raised $20,500!!!


Even in torrential downpour, community showed up and showed out on August 28, 2023 as we joined #Give828 for a national day of giving focused specifically on supporting Black-led and Black-benefitting organizations. Give 8/28 takes place during Black Philanthropy Month & Black August and commemorates multiple critical historical landmarks in progress toward Black liberation. Here are just a few:

  • August 28, 1945: Major League Baseball President Branch Rickey met with Jackie Robinson to tell him he would be integrating the Majors.

  • August 28, 1963: Dr. Martin Luther King. Jr. delivered his iconic "I Have A Dream" speech during the March on Washington in Washington. D.C.

  • August 28, 2008: Then-Senator Barack Obama accepted the Democratic nomination for president, becoming the first Black man ever to win the nomination and bid for the presidency.

BIG THANK YOU to everyone who supported and continues to support our work! As a Mutual Aid Based Cooperative Space, donations give us the opportunity to continue our work of Black generational wealth building and educating folks on solidarity economics. Programs like our Microfinancing Cooperative that provides non-extractive access to capital for Black-Owned Business is possible because of community. Initiatives like our 404 grounds coffee shop, where young people learn about cooperative work, are possible because of community. The Ke'nekt Cooperative as a Black Liberated Third Space where the community gathers to exchange ideas, is only possible because of community. Your continued support makes our work possible.


All Love,

The Ke'nekt Cooperative
